The Chicken House -- it's almost done!

It's almost done, but we've already moved the flock in.  They seriously needed their own home, and I feel so much better knowing that they are predator safe now! The only thing left to do is some trimming on the outside, and cedar paneling on the inside, with a clean out door.  But for now, just having them in is enough.  They seem real happy there!  I'm probably going to thin them out in a few weeks, maybe selling a few if I can.  If not, its the soup pot for most of those little roosters.
The front of the coop

The front showing the egg door, gives access to the two lay boxes (I'll need that in about 6 months!) ha!
The back of the coop.  We had to put a bamboo shade on to give them some shade until I can grow some fast growing tree there.  There's a little window at the back there to let us see in to the roost area.  That still needs to be trimmed with red.
View from the side. That space you see on the inside at the top roost area is where the clean out door will be, eventually. And that whole part needs to be paneled with the gold cedar.
Happy chickees!
